Margot Robbie vs. Saoirse Ronan: Who Styled Velvet Sandals Better?

Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan hit the red carpet at the 90th annual Oscars Nominees Luncheon held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Monday.

Before the two ladies go up against each other for the Best Actress award at the 2018 Oscars in March, we’re giving them a pre-emptive challenge. Both actresses wore velvet sandals, so we’re going to pit them against each other for this “who wore it better?” post.

Margot Robbie, who is nominated for her work in the film, “I, Tonya,” graced the luncheon in a Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 minidress with a tiered hem and cropped long sleeves.

We love how her frock’s interesting feather-like texture modernizes the classic Chanel tweed, and how the heavy beaded-fringe edges contrast against the soft fabric.

The Australian actress completed her ensemble with effortless-looking hair and makeup, a Chanel quilted handbag and Saint Laurent “Amber” ankle-strap sandals in black velvet.

Saoirse Ronan, who got the Best Actress nod for her work in the movie “Lady Bird,” also chose velvet heels for the luncheon. She used Rupert Sanderson “Myril Plato” pink-velvet sandals to punch up a Cushnie et Ochs Spring 2018 orange-satin spaghetti-strap dress that featured a cutout across her cleavage.

The Irish beauty rounded out her look with Ana Khouri earrings and a deconstructed ponytail hairdo by hairstylist Adir Abergel.

Pink and orange has never been an easy color combination to pull off, but Saoirse does it here beautifully.
